Bucs announce 12 training camp practices open to season pass members, club seat/suite holders and special groups beginning July 27. First practice in pads is Aug. 1. Joint practices with the Dolphins are Aug. 10-11. Once again, space for general public not available.
We'll open training camp July 27 and are set to have 12 workouts in front of Krewe Members and other special groups. #GoBucs

Looks like six for sure.
Looks like six #GoAvsGo players are on the ice for the game-winning goal vs. #GoBolts

Unreal. All those saves from Vasy and that is the shot that wins it? Colorado EARNED it. So much better than Tampa Bay in OT. Avs are gonna win the Cup. #GoBolts #GoAvsGo

He did all he could. Bolts are gassed. Down 3-1 headed to Denver. They’ve played a LOT of hockey the past three years. To win the next three in a row, two in Colorado, would be miraculous.
Best goalie in the world, man. Vasy’s a living legend

Not a forgone conclusion at all, however, he declined to add any more years to his deal and has a no franchise player clause. Given his interaction with the Dolphins this past off-season, it would seem possible he moves on after 2023.
Serious ?. Why does it seem like a foregone conclusion that if TB12 plays in 2023 it won't be as a Buc? The roster isn't trash at all. Just wondering why,whenever its brought up its always a next team and not as a Buc?

Among the young guys, Otton has the best chance to maybe develop as a complete TE, blocking and receiving. But I think they will look to add another veteran. Brate’s role may increase but he’s still primarily a pass catcher.
@NFLSTROUD With Gronk news (still think back for playoffs) what’s the feel on Otton? If gets Brady’s trust could be nice rookie season ahead. Know have Brate but expect more of same from him which isn’t Gronk

Rob Gronkowski’s agent, Drew Rosenhaus, said that Gronk could still come out of retirement “if Tom Brady calls him during the season,” per @AdamSchefter

#Bucs were informed last week of Rob Gronkowski’s decision to retire, one week after the mandatory minicamp. Rookie TEs Cade Otton and Ko Kieft become huge additions as well as Cam Brate, Codey McElroy and I drafted TE JJ Howland.

Gronkowski will count $5 million against the salary cap in 2022 in dead money. It’s not much of a savings.
@gregauman @NFLSTROUD Curious to know both of your views on what the Bucs will do with additional cap space now that Gronk has retired ?
